Apple pancakes


  • 1 cup wholemeal self-raising flour
  • 2 tbsp sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 green apple, peeled, cored and sliced
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 3 tbsp butter


In a mixing bowl combine the flour, sugar, egg, vanilla and milk.

Heat a frying pan and add a little of the butter. Pour 3/4 cup of batter into the pan and arrange apples in a circle on top of the batter.

Brush the apples with a little of the melted butter in the pan and sprinkle with cinnamon.

Carefully turn making sure not to dislodge the apples and cook on the other side.


  • I serve these with maple syrup but they are fine on their own.
  • I often serve these with ice-cream for dessert.
